How High School Physics Can Help Us With Our Weightlifting
We all know that high school students are not very good at weight training. They have no experience with heavy weights, they don’t even understand what is the purpose of it.
So how do we solve this problem? How can we teach them to lift heavier weights? What’s the best way to show them how it works?
Well, I’m going to tell you.
You need to start your own gym! You need to build a weight room like Arnold Schwarzenegger did. And you’re going to use the same methods he used when he was young and strong:
Build a solid foundation of strength exercises (squatting, deadlifts, bench pressing) Build up from there using compound movements (bench press, overhead presses).
The first step is to get stronger. That means doing squats, deadlifts, bench presses and other basic exercises. These will allow you to develop your core strength and strengthen your muscles.
You’ll also be able to improve your coordination so that you can perform these exercises faster and better than before. Finally, you’ll be able to lift heavier weights which will increase your overall strength level.
This is the most important step. Without a strong base, you can’t get too far into bodybuilding. By that I mean you have to focus on getting stronger on the basic exercises.
Get your elbows stronger so that you can lift heavy weights over your head when you perform the overhead press. Get your legs stronger so you can squat heavier weights and more of them. Get your back stronger so you can deadlift more weight. You have to get stronger in all these areas if you ever want to reach the peak of your potential as a bodybuilder.
As the next step, I want you to increase your strength on the basic exercises themselves. For example, once you’re able to squat 300 pounds for 10 reps, increase it to 350 pounds for 10 reps. Once you get to the point where you’re able to squat 400 pounds for 10 reps, increase it to 450 pounds for 10 reps.
Then, after a while, you’ll be able to squat 500 pounds for 10 reps. This is how you get stronger on the basic exercises. From there, it’s about increasing your numbers on the compound lifts – bench presses, overhead presses, deadlifts and squats.
That’s all the advice I have for you. Follow this advice and you’ll be able to increase your weights a lot easier than before. Develop your core strength and then expand out from there.
Your body will grow and strengthen with the weights, but it’s all about how much you can lift.
In conclusion, follow these steps and you’ll be able to increase your weights a lot better than before. If you have any questions, please ask them in the comments section below. Also, please share this article online with your friends so more people can find it and read it.
